About Gal

I'm a developer and general contractor on Maui, and I purchased Villas By The Cove in February 2017. I'm passionate about building, design and architecture and I bring that passion to my vacation rental properties. My goal was to create a private villa for couples or large travel groups such as weddings, retreats and family reunions where everyone has convenient and easy access to the great surf and white sandy beaches across the street. I look forward to meeting guests from all over the world and make it a priority to introduce myself when I'm on property. In my free time I time enjoy surfing, traveling, practicing yoga and spending time with my family. I welcome you as a guest at Villas By The Cove and I look forward to providing a memorable stay for you.

Gal purchased this bungalow in 2017

Why Gal chose Kihei

Villas By The Cove offers comfort and convenience just steps from two of the best beaches on Maui's south side. Restaurants, grocery stores, shopping plazas, nightlife, and Kalama Park's tennis courts, basketball courts, roller skating rink, large playground and running paths offer activities for all ages.

What makes this bungalow unique

Villas By The Cove takes its name from the unique location across the street from the Cove Beach Park, Maui’s popular surf spot frequented by locals and visitors.

All nine villas are surrounded by the lush tropical landscape of mango and palm trees, where the sounds of ocean waves and tropical breezes foster relaxation and serenity.

Walking on the beach, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, shell-seeking, and whale watching are some of the daily activities just steps away from each villa’s front door.

The most enjoyable stay on Maui.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the entire stay at Villas by the Cove. They are close to the beach, park and shopping. The unit had everything needed for our week long stay and was very well maintained. I liked that it was a small park like feel. Only 8 units so it didn't feel like a big hotel. We bought some groceries so we didn't have to eat out for every meal. They had a cooler, beach chairs, umbrella and other items that we used often for the beach. It was perfect and I definitely recommend it for anyone who wants a more lical experience of Maui. We will definitely stay here again. In the mornings and evenings we enjoyed our view of the ocean from our patio. It's directly across the street. The only improvement I would like to see is central A.C. to replace the wall unit which was a bit noisy, but kept the unit very cool. I liked having our parking covered and directly in front of the unit. It was very convenient. Our unit was a single unit with no adjoining units so it felt very private and was very quiet as well. The grounds are well maintained and manager was responsive and helpful. I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to stay here!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review Candy! We are continuing to remodel all of the villas next month in November, and each one will have a quiet split ac unit to replace the older wall ac units. We look forward to having you come back and stay with us again soon.

An enjoyable few days in Maui

  • 3 of 5

We found the accommodations very comfortable. We enjoyed eating all of our meals on the patio in the shade of the big tree out front. Nice to get a slight view of the ocean from our table.

The sunsets were spectacular.

A few areas for improvement are:

Sliding door needs work and a screen. Hard to open and close.

Traffic noise is deplorable. We don't like air conditioning and opened the windows for cross ventilation. We can't think of a solution for this except have police clamp down on high noise vehicles and enforce speed limit.

The ceiling fan is out of balance and makes noise.

The light bulb over the vanity was burnt out, no sugar as advertised and maid said there was none, door lock was hard to open. Need to pay attention to details.

We didn't see you around the property except when we arrived.

Best "Boutique" Resort in South Kihei

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at the Maui Cove Park Inn, and it will definitely not be our last. The cottages are absolutely precious, and the new owners are beyond helpful. We made a last minute booking, and although we could not stay at one cottage the entire time, Chelsea made sure that we had a place to lay our heads each night. The units are perfect for a couples get away, all very unique, and well stocked for the perfect Maui vacation. They even go as far as making sure you have everything you need to enjoy a perfect day at the beach. Cove Park and Charley Young, two of the best beaches in South Maui, are just a few steps away. Cove Park is PERFECT for the surfer/paddle boarder in your party, or if hanging out and building sand castles is your ideal day, then Charley Young is the best place in Maui for that. The units are all exceptionally clean, and the grounds are beautifully kept. I would recommend Cove Park Inn to anyone looking for a Maui getaway. Its the perfect location for all things Maui.

Great for large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

There were 24 of us (counting 2 babies) staying in the 8 bottom units. We totally enjoyed the privacy we felt as a group, with several dinner gatherings easily done on the property. Because the units are facing each other, we were able to see each other as much as we wanted. The kids (and adults) had a great time playing hide and go seek type games in the dark, which we felt safe with since all of the units we had were ground floor. Several of us rented bikes, and enjoyed the easy access to them. Going to the beach was super easy, as people would come and go at all times. Being by the park was great, as we had several skate-boarders in the group. Walking out to dinner, or to get a coffee, was very convenient. We couldn't have asked for a better situation for this large of a group.

What a fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Kiehi and our first time with VRBO. To say the least, both were fabulous! Ralph was a great resource for local attractions: restaurants, luaus, surf shops, Road to Hana. We stayed in Villa 3 and loved the set up! It had everything we needed to prepare meals (including BBQ), easily accessible laundry facilities, beach gear and the patio was awesome! The Secret Beach was spectacular, secluded and how sweet it was that it was across the street. Sunsets never disappointed! This was the perfect getaway for a of couple teachers needing to recharge! We will be back! Thanks Ralph for making our stay so enjoyable!

Cove Park & Charley Young Beach
Car: recommended

Tucked away on a residential oceanfront side street, Villas By The Cove offers privacy and convenience across the street from the beach. Guests of all ages will never be bored with the unlimited activities just steps away from the property. Guests can walk to The Cove beach across the street and go surfing or stand up paddle boarding. At the end of the street is Charley Young Beach, a long stretch of white sand great for swimming, beach walks and boogie boarding, also a popular location for sunset wedding ceremonies. Snorkeling, whale watching, shopping, and dining at nearby restaurants and bars are some of the many activities within walking distance from Villas By The Cove. Families with children can enjoy the neighboring Kalama Park’s large playground, skate board park, outdoor roller skating rink, tennis courts, basketball courts and running paths. Surf Schools, bicycle and scooter rentals, spa treatments and a farmer’s market are just around the corner.
